This classic book uses an exceptional art program, featuring impeccable accurate five-color illustrations, to introduce readers to the vast world of painting, sculpture, architecture, photography, and the minor arts. With its effectively written, balanced, and interesting narrative, this book presents art as a succession of styles-from Prehistory through the Middle Ages-and enlarges the readers' capacity to appreciate works of art individually. Written more than 40 years ago, this book has been constantly reworked to respond to the needs of this ever-changing field. This Volume contains Chs. 1-11 of the Combined volume, focusing on the art of the Ancient World through the Middle Ages: Prehistoric Art; Egyptian Art; Ancient Near Eastern Art; Aegean Art; Greek Art; Etruscan Art; Roman Art; Early Christian and Byzantine Art; Early Medieval Art; Romanesque Art; and Gothic Art. A reference work suitable for those employed in all art media, including painters, sculptors, photographers, and architects.
